A world upside down

As the desert

Bursts into blossom

Wildflowers and rain

Building transformation

The winds carry a chill

As we chase the day

A steely silver monochrome

Replaces all the shades

Of sunlight

The desert turns

Into tears

A liquid world

As the sands drink greedily

Every falling drop

And we dance

Between raindrops

Across the desert floor – Caroline A. Slee

  1. …wow you are so talented Caroline, I love reading your poems. We have not been in the desert much this year. Its hard having two dogs and a cat, not very mobile. Hope you are well, miss you guys. We’ll have to get together next time we’re in town. Cheers, Rose
